Hobokenpix: Grube’s Gourmet Deli

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 4/29/2009

I walk by this place all the time – and always forget to ask if anyone remembers this place on 12th St. between Garden & Park. When was it open? When did it close? Was it any good?

Long gone.

Now residential, w/extended Grube family members still there, I hear, living on both floors.

Sometimes cats are visible, poking noses out on the 12th St. street-level, noodling around what was the old storefront….

What is going on there now? I walk past this place every day and the only thing I can see is a chia pet next to the door. Sometimes there is a cat there too. The lights are on sometimes…

I would stop at Willies on my way to school in the late 60’s/early 70’s.

Up against the big window he had a large table, little kid height, where he had the treats laid out. Hostess fruit pies, boxes of animal crackers (with the string on the box so you could carry it like a pocketbook), individual crullers, etc.

When I could save up the 10 cents, I would go for the animal crackers.
